French Court invalidates two Nokia patents that are asserted against OPPO


The Judicial Court of Paris invalidated two Nokia implementation patents (EP 1704731 and EP 1702486), finding they are both invalid for lack of novelty, a decision that stands in contrast to other decisions on the same patents in Europe, according to news by JUVE Patent on July 31. JUVE Patent said the Regional Court of Mannheim found EP 1704731 valid and infringed by OPPO in June 2022. It is also reported that Nokia asserted EP 2981103 and EP 3220562 against OPPO in four lawsuits. Both patents belong to the same patent family as EP 1704731.
